more civilian deaths reported in libya as nato continues airstrikes against government targets and rebels are forced to treat over dumbass i think counter-offensive. security services in europe the libyan ex-pats people through the lens through terrorism educated conspiring with our own kind. and israeli businessmen trapped in georgia it's a court decision says he's been set up other government boy eight hundred million dollars into him and.

their well live from moscow twenty four hours a day welcome to watty powerful explosions have been heard in tripoli and they've been capital faced from bugman for the eleventh night running the government says more civilians were killed in the interest and then strikes for the eastern rebel forces are being pushed out of recently captured territory. his hometown by heavy counter offensive as the latest from a different type of. there with we are now explosions here in the capital city of tripoli i was actually indoors when it happened and i continue that we have windows of the building visibly shocked and as i'm speaking to you we hear in a few gunshots just coming to my right now it's not only tripoli but also the city of misrata that has been hit increasingly so by these coalition planes this also is the last rebel held stronghold in the west of libya but the latest reports
12:02 am
interests of the rebels all forced using ground it's very difficult as foreign journalists to ascertain exactly what's happening in misrata because the fighting there has been going on for almost a month and we have simply been able to enter the downtown area of the city the doctors there telling us that it is already days that we can still talk ran out of medical supplies but they have been forced to turn patients away that government snipers are standing on the roofs of buildings and literally shooting at anything that needs and that some of the government times that all shelling actually shelling into residential areas now one of this is happening on the one hand there's this war of arms and ammunition there is another bill that's taking place parallel to it and this is the propaganda it is interesting that the pentagon has been giving almost day here comes in terms of its operations here in libya but only now has it made mention of its propaganda claims and these are essentially planes that fly over in battle towns and cities they drop leaflets and they bore cross
12:03 am
messages urging people to stop supporting gadhafi to lay down arms and to return home it doesn't really seem to be anything besides of on the horizon surfin off now in terms of the front line which keeps shifting just forty eight hours ago it certainly looked as if the rebels were making a quick advance ultimately here on the capital city of tripoli not only have they been stopped at gadhafi stronghold of sirte but they're not actually being pushed back and the latest word we have is that they are in the town of windsor watch but even those kind of reports keep changing every few hours with some record suggesting that they've actually been pushed even further back to russia and greg. the problem with the rebels is that they simply do not have enough weapons not only that but that the britons they do have are insufficient and old and this is why we hear rebels warning to the international community to not go bark stick up the airstrikes and number to supply them with more weapons they want to play all the saving reinforcements of these weapons on the egyptian border we're also hearing that as gadhafi forces would treat and as they want to wait in face of impending is
12:04 am
fight they leave a lot of weapons and ammunition behind that the rebels are enabled to take and use themselves but certainly in the opposition need is very much a hoping that they will be a willingness expressed obviously national community to continue to be involved in the company here because certainly without that international involvement the rebels really do not stand a chance of ever reaching tripoli. the representatives from the libyan rebels are seeking what military assistance from the coalition front says it's ready to talk about supplying arms and statements by the country's foreign minister kamal conference in about thirty minutes from. her discuss directly or because the u.n. resolution for its own supplies to the rebels president barack obama has also made it clear that make us. unique institute of islamic political thought so there is disagreement between the insurgents and those
12:05 am
deciding their future. some of the members of this international coalition. have already discounted gaddafi and his regime and recognized the leaders of the rebels as the legitimate representatives of the libyan people and i remember that this started with a very limited mandate to impose a no fly zone and then very quickly progressed into bombardment of. gaddafi forces in order to tilt the balance in favor of the rebels or the revolutionaries and now there is talk about removing gadhafi altogether and this is not something that everybody agrees on or everybody has a clear vision as to how it could proceed but i think one of the signs of the lack of consensus is the fact there representatives of the rebels although they are in london have not been invited to the meeting and that just shows that there is no
12:06 am
agreement to recognize them all to even deal with the. u.s. congressman dennis kucinich says the bombings that are reportedly caused civilian deaths and possible humanitarian crisis have been carried out by the u.s. unconstitutionally. since congress wasn't consulted on whether to go to war and i think the only real power congress has here to assert itself as the people's representative is to stop funding you can do it with a few leaders but there are five hundred thirty five members of congress the constitution of the united states makes it abundantly clear that the war powers is put in the hands of the congress this is not an academic issue by the way because what we have is a president who basically is assumed as a matter of executive privilege the war power the bombing that has occurred through it and in large no fly zone where the no fly zone mandate was expanded to
12:07 am
go after these troops and then expand it further to help the rebels as they move towards tripoli there's no way you can avoid civilian casualties and so what we're doing here is enlarging humanitarian crisis with more people becoming refugees with more civilians put at risk of injury or death to the bombing. and get information from our correspondents in the tribal region you can read that first time thoughts it's with the stream and facebook page for your reports for the stories having had so it's easy. it's.
12:08 am
a new case secret service and i follow it has a growing concerns that would be in exports of plotting terrorist attacks in britain according to reports it would be seen as revenge for bombing raids on the plane countries on as mission more. of a look so all of these threats could be connected to our own kind. e.u. countries have taken a leading role in forcing the u.n. resolution but their efforts all the way over in libya now threaten to bring conflict right to their very own back door was a list claim colonel gadhafi now has little other weapons left in his armory an overseas terror he's faced repeated accusations that he ordered look at the bombing that killed two hundred seventy mostly westerners experts say some countries are particularly in the firing line three leading countries of the offensive of the
12:09 am
operation between u.k. in. the states of course the only option he has really is to use terror so i think little choice today it's a clear i could in prison venture today i mean there is need in the coming weeks but you backing for anti gadhafi rebels could backfire further rebel leaders include the libyan islamic fighting group and associates of al qaida and the casualties mounting every day from allied bombing and make fertile recruiting ground for anti western forces there are agents of ok that berkeley well in v.b. at that at not fear of chaos. i am sure. e.u. muslims protest against nato bombing of libya the organizer says people should prepare for the worst.

ghost town of prepared in ukraine was a bustling scene this was not only the pride of the soviet union in terms of construction something of a role model of a perfect town but also it was one of its biggest secrets towns like guides were called or a nuclear city and they were restricted only to the nuclear power plant workers and some military personnel and security service men is nowadays part of the chernobyl exclusion zone and it is believed to be very unsafe to live here in terms of radiation levels this is the place where the authorities made their first fatal mistake this is called the death bridge it connects the chernobyl nuclear power station and the closest town of people that when the explosion happened nobody knew what was going on in the very first hours so the authorities set up a security checkpoint in order to avoid anyone leaving the city and entering the contaminated area the security checkpoint was at the very end of this bridge nobody knew how much radiation was emitted and most of the policemen who were working at
12:14 am
this security checkpoint died in the first days after the explosion there's a lot of misperception and misunderstanding concerning the levels of radiation in the chernobyl area or how dangerous it is here many speculate as to whether the land is populated with mutants or the levels the radiation would be able to kill a human being within minutes or even seconds now i'm walking in the central part of people right now and my radiation meter shows the level of around a hundred and forty my corona inspire our this is of course about five seven times more than the normal human level and it may sound scary to some but this still is a radiation would not kill a human being but in some parts of the parents radiation levels go much much higher this is now around three hundred twenty micro wrong in which is more than fifteen times more than the normal human level of radiation but if we just take a little walk to this layer of moss on the ground you'll see that there. ideation level will go dramatically higher now this layer of morse is one of the most

dangerous spots and keep it intact and it adds like a radioactive sponsor if we put radiation meter on it you can see and you can even hear how frantic the radiation meter goes and the numbers are increasing rapidly. some may say that this is very dangerous for for human health but some specialists told me on many occasions that in order to get some kind of harm to your body to to maybe even get the first stages of radiation sickness you have to literally just sit in the slayer for a week or so and only then you will feel some harm to your body in the fallout period of many nuclear particles still remaining in this area amounts to several thousand years only few of them actually started their fall out period twenty five years since the chernobyl accident should anything like that happen at the fukushima nuclear reactor the insider fifty sixty maybe even seventy kilometer radius would be evacuated that is according to some experts because literally all
